When Is It Okay To Tell Someone They Are Being Ignorant?

Published March 5, 2016 by Angela

Is it ever okay?

If you say it nicely does that make it okay?

Do you just spit it out because it really needs to be brought to their attention?

Or is it only okay when said ignorance puts that person or others in danger?

I have been at a high frustration level all week, and today literally took the cake, and every other dessert right along with it.

I believe in kindness first, even with those who are not kind to me. 

But everyone has their limits, and I am pretty sure mine has been exceeded today. 

My Facebook friends list has been so thoroughly and systematically cleaned out they may force me to shut it down for lack of friends😉

Do you let it get the best of you, or you just say what needs to be said, and sleep better at night?


Adult Bullies…

Published May 2, 2014 by Angela

…Absolutely infuriate me. How can we expect our children, grandchildren, brothers and sisters, friends and relatives to not be bully’s while we are so willing to give them perfect examples of how to do it? I have 2 children who are not allowed on Facebook or any other social media because of getting bullied and harassed.

Yet I witness online on a daily basis, adults being bullied. Whether it is through Facebook, quotes on online news sites, this immediate access we now have has changed us somehow. We no longer feel the need to mind our words, and watch what we say, especially when we are hiding behind a computer screen and no one knows who we are.

What happened to basic respect, being courteous, polite, and keeping your mouth shut? Is whatever it is you need to say going to benefit anyone else, or are you just being a bully? Are you intentionally saying something for the sheer delight of being cruel and getting a complete stranger riled up?

Shame on you! It is time to be good role models, act how we would expect others to act, treat people as you want to be treated.

And if you don’t have anything nice to say, then for Goodness sake, keep your mouth shut!

OK, I am done now!

Have you been bullied online? How did you handle it?
